Freshwater Rigging, Lures, Baits, and Kayak Fishing Success

Paddling the Loxahatchee River (Jupiter, FL)

One of my favorite toys, and passions in life, is my kayak and kayak fishing.  A kayak’s size and light weight works well with our kind of lifestyle and the places we visit.  We’ve been up and down the East coast and every where we go, I can barely launch my fishing kayak before someone wants to talk to me about it!  It’s quite a fishing machine when fully rigged.

Kayak fishing is gaining popularity every day.   This awesome sport is one that nearly anyone can get into quickly and affordably.

Prevent Blowouts on Your RV

Since starting our adventure, we’ve had to learn a lot about previously unfamiliar RV technical aspects and maintenance.  Without a doubt, the single biggest problem has been our travel trailer tires!  We’ve all bought, maintained, and replaced car tires before, but the same rules and information doesn’t apply to trailer tires.  There are different considerations, variables, and maintenance steps.

Flying Over the Grand Canyon

grand-canyon-helicopterOn this bucket list adventure, we flew over the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in an ECO-Star helicopter.  We strapped in, held on, and were amazed as the ground dropped away – leaving us hovering over the massive canyon!

The huge, 90ft Ponderosa Pine trees looked like toothpicks from the sky.

In this point of view high-definition video, you’ll see the gorge 5,000 feet down, the Colorado River raging below, and huge Ponderosa Pines on the cliff face. Continue reading

Traveler or Camper?

Are you a traveler or camper?  Or maybe both?

For us, it’s mix of both.  Over the last several years, I started to nearly hate travelling.  Not all kinds of travelling though; more specifically airplane travel.  Going on long ice hockey road trips as a kid gave me my fair share of long car rides that I can tolerate.  It’s just my luck that many plane trips, that were supposed to only be 4 or 5 hours total, ended up taking 13 or 14 hours just to get home.  I hate the idea of going somewhere, especially for fun, only to have to burn 2 full days on travel.  Even for some recent business trips, I ended up getting stuck somewhere or really delayed.  Thus, I’ve grown tired of it.

“You’re Living the Dream!” Yeah, Right!

Yeah, right!  That’s what I’ve felt like saying this week to that statement.  After camping locally at home for 2 weeks prior to this, all was going well.  Then, we got on the road for the first long term trip.  We had 2 days of travel lined up to Smith Mountain Lake and Pigeon Forge, TN.  Should have been about 8 hours over both days.  Instead we ended up being on the road, most of it stranded, for 22 hours total.  That was because of these 3 tire blowouts.
